AKG "K267 TIËSTO" - Discussion, Impressions & Review Thread - Page 70

post #1036 of 1043
UPDATE: i requested from AKG what the serial number is for the "revision" version so i do not purchase the faulty ones...and they were cagey and would not give me a serial number? they just said "if you purchase one of these from one of our authorised on-sellers there will be no issues".

i think this attempt to avoid the question is really suspicious. what gives? whats so hard about letting the customer know?

Hey guys. Sorry for the dumb question, but I am a newbie when it comes to the headphone game. Anyways,  I recently bought my first AKG product (K812) without testing. There is a massive sale for all AKG products here in Hong Kong, and the store that I bought it from only had a sealed unit that I could not demo. Anyways,  fortunately for me, after about 1 week with it, I have fallen in love with the K812 and the AKG house sound in general. I also have a V-moda m100 that I use for business trips and portable use with my AK120II. Nothing wrong with it, but I was wondering would you guys suggest I sell the M100 in favour of the K267? I know many members will suggest I go for a demo myself and i[m hoping I can find a store that will let me.  I listen to mostly to mandarin songs some pop and some rap.:etysmile:  Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks

I own the K267 and have owned the M100. Everything except build quality is better on K267.

 

In stage both are U shaped in their response but M100 more so, the bass is quite thick for my taste on M100.

the K267 has better mids, and highs - while not as sparkly have better definition IMO. The K267 is also better isolating and more comfortable.

 

without third party cable the K267 isn't very portable though, and isn't great around the neck.

 

Because the older revisions have issues, it is important to get it from an authorised dealer whom you trust and you can claim warranty in case of failure.

 

Never heard the high end K812 but switching from that directly to K267 you will see it as warmer sounding. But the clarity on K267 is excellent within its world of DJ headphones. Kind of like a HD25 which is smooth and warm yet detailed with some treble excitment, just that the K267 will have better sub bass response be over ear and more comfortable.

Thanks Blinxat for your input. Looks like I'll be posting the M-100 for sale asap!

timmy i am very jealous that you scored a pair of K812s.

 

may i ask how much you paid for them at the mega sale? the RRP is so far out of my price range i always disqualified this pair of headphones but maybe on a special day on a special sale when the moon is full and the time is right then just maybe i could afford them?? hehe

The MRSP for the headphones when they first came out was 13,980HKD. However AKG switch distributor in Hong Kong or something along those lines and the entire AKG line got massive sales including the 712,702, K3003 etc . I ended up paying 8888hkd for my K812. I'm very pleased with the headphone and now i'm contemplating if I want to sell my HD800. Hope that helps.

Sh3p1 ...just a reminder, can you give us some insight into your serial numbers? this is still yet to be nailed on the head in relation to the "problematic" versions, your info would be very valuable...cheers!

Well, it finally happened to me. frown.gif  I use these things so rarely and they are mostly stored folded up in their bag.  I was using them yesterday for the first time in months and just left them out overnight.  This morning they were broken.  I didn't notice any fit or other issues when I took them off.  Very strange. Serial number starts 006xxx.
